One of the first European film festivals to start back up again after lockdown, the fifth edition of the Riviera International Film Festival is scheduled to unfold between 20 and 30 May in Sestri Levante, offering up a hybrid programme unspooling online and in person.

Young people and the environment have been confirmed as the festival’s themes, but escape is what really unites the ten films in competition this year, all of which are directed by under-35s. “Escape in the sense of emigration, an escape from reality, from social conventions or in an attempt to find oneself. Escape from illness, adolescence, or for love. This common feature aside, these stories are totally different, in stylistic and visual terms too”, explains Head of Programming Massimo Santimone.
